Orcs & Elves (DS)

 

When you think of casual games, first-person dungeon crawls probably aren't what spring to mind. They can be slow, difficult, and--if the level designers don't play their cards right--downright boring. id Software showed that this didn't have to be the...

Before John Carmack went and founded id Software (essentially creating the FPS genre with Wolfenstein and Doom), he was just another kid who liked to play Dungeons & Dragons with his friends. However, rather than playing set scenarios, teenage Dungeon...

The problem with the DS incarnation of Orcs & Elves is that it doesn't give enough incentive to buy it over, say, a $5 download for your cell phone. But if you don't have a cell phone, then I suppose having the game would be worth it. The game was...

Inspired by the classics

The inspiration for the game goes deeper than Doom and Quake. While playing I kept thinking back to an old RPG classic (and one of my all time favorites) Eye of the Beholder where a team of heroes is gathered to find out what is going on underneath the...

Old-school fantasy in a 3D environment; new levels and monsters

Nothing that we haven't seen in the past 20 years; little use of stylus

A talking wand, barrels of brew and ugly monsters make for an enjoyable role-playing adventure.

Although it's easy to poke fun at the story, it harkens back to a day when hardcore role players locked themselves in their basements and played Dungeons & Dragons with friends, and because of that, Orcs & Elves has an old school charm missing from the...

Orcs & Elves - Review

 

If Orcs & Elves was released about 15 years or so ago on PCs, then it would have been a pretty successful RPG. Moving through a pseudo-3D dungeon and viewing things from a first-person perspective were pretty cutting edge concepts back in those days. ...

If you're looking for some fun role-playing light gameplay, then Orcs & Elves is for you.
